The H.A.W.K flies high

UK Charts

Here’s a bit of a blow for PlayStation 3 owners – after just one week at #1 Killzone 2 has been knocked off the top of the chart. But it isn’t by last week’s big new release Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.K as you might have guessed but rather by Sega’s PC thing Empire: Total War.

Ubisoft’s H.A.W.K has to settle for #4 while Halo Wars and Street Fighter IV have both dropped from #2 to #5 and #3 to #7 respectively. Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection has fallen out of the top 10 already, going from #6 to #11. Give Ristar some love, people.

Mario Power Tennis has done a bit better than Pikmin, arriving at #23. This could potentially be another one of Nintendo’s “evergreen” steady sellers, like Wii Play, Mario Kart Wii and Brain Training before it. Meanwhile Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals goes in at a lowly #25 in the DS chart. I actually thought this would sell quite well, seeing that the first one did alright.

The PSP chart also sees its first new entry in what seems like ages – Patapon 2 at #5. Things should hot up soon though – Sony have managed to convince publishers to dust off their PSP development kits, with the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Rock Band on their way. The only problem is that most UK retailers have cut their PSP sections down to just a handful of titles.
